House Democrat Delivers Expletive Filled Attack on Ted Cruz Over Texas Shooting – Opinion

Tuesday’s mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, which claimed the lives of 19 children and several other adults, shook the nation. Salvador Ramos, an 18-year old boy who committed the crime, was eventually shot dead by a Border Patrol officer responding to his call. He had also taken a bullet or shrapnel.

In a moment when prayer and unity are essential for grieving people, Democrats saw a political opportunity that they decided to seize. There were many instances when left-leaning members of politics and media took to social media and blamed Republicans for a shooting. But, while the majority of these examples are quite common, the one that is most disgusting was the House Democrat Ruben Galego.

These posts were posted before the death toll had been released. They did not provide any information about the shooting motives, gun sources, or possible preventive actions. I would suggest that it’s important to identify a specific policy that would have stopped the shooting before trying to place blame on completely unrelated individuals. It is absurd to pretend that Ted Cruz, who opposes universal background checks which would have prevented any mass shootings in recent history, makes him pro child murder.

Concerning the discussion of abortion, Cruz claimed that Cruz is concerned about a foetus, but not children being killed, but a fetus can be considered a child. I find it strange that Democrats feel now is the best time. Gallego was not the only one who used that argument to show that they wanted to kill babies until birth. What am I supposed to take away from that except that they only care about protecting kids when it’s politically convenient and fits into their worldview? On the other hand, I’m certain that Cruz is anti-child murder before and after they exit the womb, which makes him the consistent voice here.

It is a deeply disturbing thing. Human beings, as much as we want to convince ourselves otherwise, do not have nearly as much control as we’d like. That includes politicians who rush to politicize tragedies by suggesting their chosen policies would have prevented attacks they so obviously wouldn’t have prevented. It is not possible to think that universal background screenings, the most popular talking point on the left, would have made any difference in this instance. According to current evidence, the shooter did pass one. While this is happening, some people laugh at the idea of increasing school security, which could make a difference.

Regardless, the rush to vilify one’s political opponents for tragedies they did not perpetrate has gone too far. Ted Cruz was not involved in the Texas shooting. Morally, it is unacceptable to attempt to blame Cruz and degrade the life of babies in the womb.
